Letchworth the world’s first garden city

Welcome to a Pioneer Town!

Letchworth is the world’s first Garden City, a town founded on a utopian dream : to unite the best of town and country life.

Rich in beautiful parks and gardens, our leafy avenues radiate out from a cultural centre that is a forum for arts and ideas.

Letchworth Garden City was created in 1903 to marry the green open spaces which make country life so appealing, with the social vribrancy of towns.

This idea drew visionaries from around the world, who poured their energies into creative architecture : in ideal hornes and striking schools, an elegant municipal centre and verdant town gardens.

Still a hub for the expression of new ideas, today stimulating and diverse arts, theatre, dance and discussions unfold inside those amazing parks and buildings.

All this and only 30 minutes from London and Cambridge.
